Folklorist Scott has expanded the field of Australian folklore beyond traditional tales and arts by examining the urban folktale or contemporary legend, verbatim yarns like the tall tale and the folklore perpetuated in the schoolroom and the playground, particularly the range of games played, the need to document these in the Australian context, also the need to document the folklore that arose around World War II, how our higher education institutions have mostly neglected the study of our own folklore, except perhaps in the area of the anthropology of Aboriginal culture, and the lack of a central repository for Australian folklore research.
